From now


Decentralized drinking water treatment replaces conventional centralized treatment plants and distribution networks in rural areas particularly in transitional countries (lacking infrastructure) or in case of natural disaster (destroyed infrastructure). A treatment process coping with intermittent power supply, lacking supply of spare parts and chemicals was developed at the chair. In contrast to water backpack PAUL we focus on long-life cycle and novel cleaning concept. Now it is time to bring it to application and to test it there.

Your tasks include:

  • Detailed dimensioning of the prototype
  • Construction and design of the prototype
  • Assembly and commissioning
  • Initial testing in real environment

What you get:

  • Construction skills
  • Practical skills for experimental labwork and tinkering
  • Comprehensice supervision
  • Participation in an innovative project where you can make the difference
